Pricing – Our Philosophy

We believe that it is important that our clients should have access to an employment law fee structure that is open, transparent and ultimately adds value to their case.

Because of the often uncertain nature of how much employment work will be required, we believe that working on a time spent basis for employment work is the fairest and most proportionate way to charge our clients.

We will always take the time to provide you with as much information on the potential likely costs of using our services as we can and we will keep you regularly updated on where your fees stand.

Keeping you aware of how much the work is costing you allows you maintain control over the amount you spend. We consider that is an important part of providing the best service possible to our clients.
